CHENGDU (Xinhua): A forum aimed at further deepening cooperation between China and Asean on digital economy was held Monday (Nov 9) in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province.

The 2020 Asean-China Digital Economy Cooperation Conference attracted officials from the Chinese government and Asean embassies and consulates in China, representatives from China and Asean business associations, experts in the field of the digital economy, and leading enterprises.

The participants shared their views on the development status and cooperation prospects of the China-Asean digital economy and explored more opportunities for bilateral cooperation.

Chen Dehai, secretary-general of Asean-China Center, said promoting the Asean-China digital economy cooperation will help countries in the region resume economic and social development, create more jobs, improve people's well-being and inject new momentum to the Belt and Road countries' high-quality development.

"China is the world's second-largest digital economy and leads the world in the value of many digital applications, including e-commerce and mobile payments," said Ambassador of Indonesia to China Djauhari Oratmangun.

"China's advance in digital technology and Asean's abundant potential as a fast-growing digital market surely will be the perfect match for future digital development," he said.

2020 is the Year of the Asean-China Digital Economy Cooperation.
